- As a friend of mine called it, “the amazing short story search engine”
- I’ve found this website to be pretty helpful in tracking down agents by genre.
- Blog that critiques queries. Was recommended to me by an author I go to church with.
- Search for literary agents in their database
- Organize and track your queries
- Check out data on various agents (response time, reply rate, etc)
- This was also recommended to me. It looks like it’s currently looking for a new person to run the site, but there’s still some good stuff on it, and hopefully they’ll find someone soon. It’s all about avoiding scams and whatnot.
- Found this as I was submitting to a writing contest. Basically it keeps track of a bunch of different magazines and their submission deadlines and costs and everything. It’s amazing. You can sort by fiction, or sci-fi, or fantasy, and even by cost of submitting. It saves your information, keeps track of your submissions and their status. And it’s free for writers.
- A Facebook group that tracks submission calls. You have to request to join them, and you are not allowed to post your own work. They mean business, and they’ve got a great track record.
William Shunn’s Proper Manuscript Format
- An article describing “proper manuscript format,” which is the format many agents and magazines require when taking submissions.
